It’s true, but Petracca and Garlett kicking easy goals would have helped too. 

We could have had the game sewn up by the final break.

Garlett's miss, when he had entire 50 in front of him but lazily kicked it from 40 instead of running in, was the worst one.

Honestly need clarity.... The WCE player who got knocked out play stopped immediately , I thought this could only happen once the stretcher is called? 

When Salem got tunneled in the 4th (another missed free) and hit his head and was on the ground the umps let the play continue... When are they meant to stop the play?

Boys gave it all I am just over watching Eagles get critical goals from free kicks. You just know where going to get pineapple. I don’t know about other posters but Eagles are the most arrogant pile of manure and have been since early 90s. That pay out on Gawn show up their mentality. I just live for the day we whip there [censored].

"I watched him against the hawks and GC live mate, tonight has been the same, if we didn’t have so many injuries he’d be playing are casey we’re he belongs this year"

 

I honestly don't know how you can call Fristch a turnover merchant based on watching 2 games live. The guy has 80% disposal efficiency for the year. If you can find a better user of the ball coming out of our backline other than Salem be my guest.

Im ropable. The double standard  of umpiring tonight  was vomit inducing. Simon Goodwin  needs to step up and ask some hard questions  at afl hq.   That balding a$$ wipe made so many awful decisions.  Gambling is now rooted in this game and opens it up to  corruption.

I am shattered who wouldn't be however a step in the right direction. 8 frees to 1 in the last to the Weasles. No back line but rapt in Petty and the ever reliable Marty Hore. Upseting that we did genuinely have our chance but l am proud of the boys.

Give me something to hang onto. If only we converted the early misses. Yes if only.  We keep the faith.

Our  most encouraging performance thus far. Looked really dangerous and by far the better team for most of the night. Lack of polish, especially in front of goals, meant we didn’t put them away when we should have.

Once Baker adjusts to the speed of the game he’s going to be a very good player. 

His first two touches were brilliant.

I’d not seen much of him at Casey but it wouldn’t surprise me if he was the kind of player better suited to the open style of AFL over VFL.

I see Fritsch's problem as being fumbles. He seems to make a number of errors when going for the ball or handpassing. He nailed some kicks today though.

Some sh*t calls that quarter. But that's not what cost us. Our kicking skills are well off.

With that said Hunt and Frost (exc that fumble) were our best on grounds tonight.

Hunt was awesome, playing a role that really suits him. Frost really horrible, his 1 or 2 good things doesn't take away from all the goals he cost us.

My thoughts as well after I saw his first couple of touches. Got caught a few times but that’s going to happen in your first game. A couple were from dodgy hand passes anyway.

Let's be fair though, most people on here had written us off before the game, so the fact we led for 80%+ or something like that and should have won should be a positive to the same people who thought we were in for a 10-goal loss or a repeat of the prelim.

Massively disappointing to be the better side for most of the night & let a 19 point lead slip but you can not question the endeavour & effort by the side tonight. Grossly undermanned & backs against the wall, no ones mentioned the 6 day break & double travel which is a joke, I don't think any side would have 2 trips back to back let alone on a 6 day break... Proud of the effort just disappointed we didn't get reward

Opposition backlines must rub their hands when they know they are playing us - we feed them like a Nonna at a family dinner. 

Our forwards don’t move enough and we simply don’t win the ball once it inevitably hits the ground.

I’d love to know the stats but at a guess I would say we only regain position no more than 20% of the time the ball hits the ground in our forward line.

Umpires are a disgrace and never play Stretch again.  Turned it over 8 times tonight 

Even when he doesn't directly he just kills the ball movement, takes so long to get back off a mark and move it on.

We let this one get away, but some positives:

- We're still hungry.

- We'll get better as some of our starters return.

- Great to see Hunt in such fine form again.

- We can't ask much more from Maxy.

- Once Baker gets into the swing of things, he's going to be a great player.

- Hore gets better every game.

- TMac looks like he's finally finding his feet. He could, and should, have kicked a few goals.

Gutted, angry, infuriated. It was our game to lose and we lost it. 

Our kicking into and inside the forward line has been disgusting all year. It almost cost us last week and it cost us this week. 

Such a shame that our best footy has not been rewarded.

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
